  •  No. That's A FALSE Equivalency. We Are Not (4+ / 0-)

    questioning the poll results solely because the pollsters are "overpolling" R's or "something doesn't smell right."

    The demographics/cross-tabs of every poll should be made available so that we can all see whether  the pollsters methodology complies with general polling standards.

    If women or minorities or Northerners are underrepresented or predominate in a sample that information allows a reasonable assessment of whether, where and how to use the results of the poll.  

    The Cons insane "unskewing" ploy should not be allowed to pre-empt, embarass, or otherwise limit our ability to ask reasonable questions about the demographics of a poll sample that is supposed to be an approximate representation of a state's or a nation's demographics.
